Green & Yellow Split Pea Salad with Wholegrain Mustard Dressing

COOKBOOK: Women’s Weekly - Toss (salads + stir fries)

RATE: ❤️❤️❤️👌🏻💲

This salad wasn’t a favourite of mine. I think there was way too many split peas of each colour and not enough tomatoes. I thought the mustard dressing would bring it to life but it didnt.

I can’t say there was anything that stood out for me. We had it as a side dish with our meal. I wouldn’t have liked this salad on its own!

RECIPE: Introducing more tomatoes perhaps may have changed this salad a little. For those who are not vegetarians, a little fried bacon might have given it a kick start! SPLIT PEAS: The longer you leave them soaking, the less time it takes to cook in boiling water. Overnight is a good safe bet. The recipe says to boil for 10mins. I suggest you boil for 15mins. Softer is better than under-cooked peas.

Women’s Weekly, you let me down with this one! It was missing something special :(



1/2 cup (100g) yellow split peas (make it 50g only)
